Kitchen Stock Up

Now that the holidays are in the rearview mirror, it is time to take stock. Did you entertain and found that some of your serving platters, utensils, wine glasses, cutting boards, or other kitchen items are looking old, dated, or need replacing? Or were some items left at neighbor’s and friends homes each time you have brought a dish? If that is the case, now is the time to stock up on your kitchen needs that will have you entertaining again in style this year. 

Entertaining

Every kitchen needs certain items if you plan on entertaining or attending parties where you bring an hors d’oeuvre or dish. Serving platters, dishes, barware, utensils, cheese plates, and bottle openers are just the start to your kitchen inventory. Having more than one of these items is always a smart bet as well. Here are some of our favorite kitchen items for entertainers. 

A cheese and cracker spread is a staple when it comes to hosting parties. It’s easy to prepare, makes for a great starter, and can be carried while guests mingle and move around at the beginning of a dinner party. This cheese plate is made of rubberwood board, and comes with three stainless steel utensils with rubberwood handles and a clear glass dome. Add a personalization such as your initials or a monogram. 

Appetizers

There can never be enough serving sets! This particular piece is unique in that it does not take up much table space and can hold three different types of appetizers in the glass dishes. Perhaps you are offering fruits, nuts, candies, or even condiments or dipping sauces. The choice is yours! The glass dishes are square and measure 2 1/2″ H x 4 1/8″ square, with a 2″ square base.

Prepping the Meal

Plan on serving a roast or a traditional turkey meal? Then you will need a carving set that shines! This fork and knife set features smooth stainless steel easy to grip handles and includes a rosewood finished box with dual metal hinged and clasp closure. The lid can be personalized with your name, initials, or monogram. 

We have so many kitchen items to match your home’s decor. Check out all of our kitchen and entertaining items that would make a great addition to your next dinner party. 

New Year, New Items!

Now that the calendar has turned to a new year and decade, it’s natural to think that this is a great fresh start.
